Best AYPE Item Ever?

I’m not sure how I feel about the actual contents of this volume, but I would love to find out who created the original illustration for its cover.  The same illustration appears on the front cover of a related publication, Official classifications, and lists of exhibitors of the poultry and pigeon exhibit, which may be the more interesting of the two.  So far, the University of Washington holds the only cataloged copies known to avian-kind.

Although I am a native New Yorker, I seem drawn to the Pacific Northwest. My current gig as Manuscripts & Special Collections Cataloging Librarian at the University of Washington Libraries represents my third stint out here. Prior to coming to the UW, I have worked at the New York Public Library, King County Archives, New York University, and Columbia University (to name but a few).
